    Does anyone know how good the drop protection is? Will it be able to deak with 1 - 1.5 meter drops?

    I don't have a leather case (silicone here), but I'm guessing it has minimal / basic protection (vs cases that specifically pitch drop protection)

    I do recall someone posting apples regulations for phone cases & I think there was a reference to protection / drops?? (Maybe I'm just imagining it, lol)

    I think it would depend on where & how it feel. There have been those youtube case test & they all show different results.

    I'm sure somewhere here with a leather case will have more info, but I've read on the boards here some people with leather cases had experienced drops & their phones weren't damaged......but I'm sure results vary.

    This just shows you that a tempérées glass screen protector is essential. Proof for the nay sayers.
